Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

  • About This Course

    Once referred to as ‘Shell Shock” in the first world war the limited understanding of this complex condition led to some soldiers branded as cowards and shot!

    Our understanding has developed greatly and more since the Hillsborough Disaster, when the word trauma was used and we became aware of PTSD.

    Post Traumatic Stress Disorder has been around, but never fully recognised or understand.  We are now gaining an understanding of this important condition that seems to dominate those working in the areas it has high prevalence.

    As we evolve in science we realise how complex mental health is.  This course will develop your understanding and beyond.  Whether you work in the field of mental health, studying a degree or just interested, you will learn about the complexities of PTSD.

Great experience friendly and helpful staff

Brilliant learning experience! The staff are incredibly quick to respond to queries! No matter how many questions you have they are more than happy to help. Usually replied within minutes! I did a foot health practitioner course diploma 4. The module is sometimes difficult to understand as it is written in technical terms but nothing that is too difficult to understand. I did the fast track cou...

Great informative course

I have done 3 courses now, 2 on dog grooming and one on human anatomy. All have been at my own speed. The modules allow me to pick it up and do when i have a spare 40 minutes. The end of module questions give me the revision i need to make sure it sunk in. I’m pleased with what I have achieved on these courses and would recommend them.

I think that the units, could have better quality content, broken into easier formatted module titles. Nice comments returned on improvements and context to think in own life scenarios! They certainly give ...

I took the online Level 3 Dog Grooming course with the final exam at the end. I know it is just an online course with no practical skills required but this is the next best thing! It provided me with amazing resources and informative modules of different areas. I found this course very good and would definitely recommend it!

Great that it can be completed in your own time

My Animal Psychology Diploma was a well written and informative course. Easy to follow and complete. Great that it can be completed in your own time, allows for day to day activities to be undertaken and study to fit in when it can.

The best boost for anyone

thoroughly enjoyed this course. There was no rush and I could take it at my own time. I am visually impaired and this has boosted my confidence immensely. I had no trouble with any of the modules. Mostly it was my not reading the question properly, so that is why I made the mistake I did. Thank you for the chance to prove myself as a person in my own right. When people know you have a disabilit...
